Your Wi-Fi Security is Obsolete!

Today, the world came to know that Wi-Fi has a catastrophic vulnerability in its negotiation of security keys.

Unlike the cracking of WEP (over 15 years ago) – this represents a huge concern for individual and corporate “privacy” as:

  • the reliance of Wi-Fi for data transport has become the default standard rather than the exception,
  • without software updates, there is no “alternate” way to configure your network to protect yourself (short of turning it off)

Fortunately, the report of the WPA2 security hole came many months ago – allowing vendors to implement fixes to their products.

Unfortunately, it will take many years to proliferate those fixes to everyone and every device.  I shudder to think how many products will be abandoned as “obsolete” by their manufacturers, meanwhile millions of users will go unprotected.

This Public Service Announcement hopefully highlights your immediate need to seek firmware upgrades for all your Wi-Fi devices (phones, laptops, routers)!

All our customers can rest assured that Sera4 products are not subject to this type of attack. Our current technologies and strict security protocols – prevent “man-in-the-middle” attacks – and we’re staying on top of all security threats to maintain our leadership in high-tech security.

Will Your Employees’ Mobile Devices Work With New Smart Locks?

Will your employees’ phones all work with the new Smart Locks you want to buy?

Designing and supporting a wireless application for the many variants of Android is challenging.  Add to this, a plethora of device manufacturers who use a variety of wireless stacks, and you get:          an interoperability nightmare

Just ask Kevo, they support only specific devices from 5 Android device manufacturers.

In today’s day and age, we are subject to traditional hardware makers trying to “tack on” technology (and worse yet — digital security) to their products.

Have you seen the Whirlpool washing machine with Wi-Fi?

Consider that the leaders of tomorrow are the technology companies that live/breathe/understand a complex, mobile, Internet.

Netflix is the tech pioneer changing the landscape of media content production and distribution.

Tesla is the genius changing the landscape of many industries.

Uber — need I say more?
